Delhi woke up to "severe" air quality on Tuesday with a thick haze blanketing the city as pollution levels breached permissible standards by multiple times.

Delhi Half Marathon title sponsor Airtel on Monday hinted that it may have to stop associating with the event from next year if the "authorities" refuse to address the issue of air pollution in the Capital.

The Indian Medical Association (IMA) has also appealed to the Delhi government to shut down outdoor sports and other such activities in schools keeping in view the harmful impact of air pollution on the health of the children. As per the reports, areas like Lodhi Road, Pitampura and Punjabi Bagh have recorded small polluted particles in the air.
